Thought it was cool when Billy stood up at the beginning of "He's Gone" and started playin' the tambourine and dancing behind Mickey who is playing solo.. Check out that sweet moment.

Some fun Trivia for this show
Loved this show, start to finish. Etta James & Tower of Power horns a true delight. Etta came out just bouncing all over the stage, it was great. Although it took them a couple minutes before the horns were mic'd and heard, then it sounded awesome.
Here's some fun trivia you might remember if you were standing close enough to notice. During Franklin's Tower, sometime during the "Some come to laugh the past away" verse and chorus, Bobby broke a string. You'll notice his guitar is absent during the next jam (from 6:27 to 8:27). The whole time during the jam Bobby is standing on stage as Parish or Popick or someone was kneeling in front of him, changing his string. Jerry and the rest of the band took advantage of the moment and jammed as hard as they could, everyone focused on Weir as he stood there looking helpless, dying to be a part of it. Smiles all around the stage, and cheers from the crowd, as they kept it going bigger and bigger while Bobby just held his hands up in the air, like a kid crying "wait for me!"

What a great and underrrated show
Barely talked about or mentioned as far as i can remember in my circles, this night before new years show is a true five star experience.
Great Sound, one of those rare times where vocals, bass, guitar, keys, and drums are perfectly level and even.
The 82' sound is here and there, but from Summer tour on they really let out some classics. This is one of them.
Great setlist, great sound. Love the unusual 1st set song placement.
The Saint of Circumstance is one of the best ive ever heard, stellar Bobby vocal improvs that actually go above cheese. Great Duprees, Early versions of Touch and Throwing Stones are solid and energetic. Franklins is focused and way heady.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED SLEEPER 82' show. JERRYS ON FIRE!

The peak of 82 New Years shows
This was THE night of the 82 New Years Run. Dec 31 was ok, but not as hot as this, no question about it.
The Franklin's Tower from out of nowhere, leaping up from the closing notes of Throwing stones- it blew the roof off the place, man!
Every song, all night, straight on Grateful Dead at its 80's style best.
This was my first time at the New Years Eve series of shows...california dreaming, memorable indeed!
And check the encores!!!

Sound Quality is A in my book. The show offers great set lists for sets 1 and 2 and the transition from Throwin stones to Franklins is very tight, also these are very early versions of Touch and Throwing stones.
Set 1 is equally as desireable. strranger is kind. The sailor in set 2 is just great check out jerry's little wispers of notes during sailor.
Great sound, great list, great show! I have to have been there to give a show a 5 so this one only gets a 4 othersie its perfect!
